Northlake adds value to a hot roll bar by Rough Turning. This process removes surface defects such as seams, scabs, slivers and decarburization, while holding tight O.D. size tolerances. We can Turn and Polish (Turn & Burnish) to provide a defect free surface, better surface finish and straightness.
We have two turning lines, sometimes called bar peelers, with a size range of 1” to 4-1/2” and two lathes that can turn up to 40” diameter by 32’ lengths.
Turning is a very cost effective means of resizing damaged or aged inventory.
